Summer Financial Aid

Last updated on Feb 21, 2024

All students applying for summer financial aid must submit a 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the U.S. Department of Education. Students should submit their FAFSA online by the priority deadline of Wednesday, March 2, 2024.

Students who enroll in the summer semester may be eligible for financial aid. Please review the 2024 estimated summer awards chart which outlines the eligibility requirements for all forms of summer financial aid, including institutional scholarships.

Summer Financial Aid Step-by-Step

  1. Financial aid can only be awarded for coursework required for your degree. Work with your Undergraduate Academic Advisor or Graduate Affairs Team to ensure enrolled summer coursework fulfills a required course on your Academic Plan.
  2. Summer financial aid falls under the 2024-2025 award year. Domestic students should complete the 2024-2025 FAFSA to ensure they are considered for all eligible need-based financial aid, including federal student loans.
  3. Review and complete any assigned 2024-25 action items in Workday.
  4. Student loans require enrollment in at least 6 degree-required units. If you need to utilize student loans, ensure you meet this enrollment requirement!

Please Note:

  • Enrollment changes may result in adjustments to your summer financial aid. Changes to your summer schedule after your first course has started may be considered a withdrawal and could affect your eligibility. The sooner you do, the sooner you will receive a finalized award notification.
  • A $50 non-refundable registration fee is charged with tuition and associated fees at the time of registration.
  • Students are responsible for all charges that result from a dropped class or withdrawal, this includes the $50 registration fee.
